March 2017 NHL Draft Prospect Rankings

2017 NHL Draft Prospect Rankings

This is the first installment of my 2017 NHL Draft Prospect Rankings. I will periodically update this rankings as we move closer to the draft and into the offseason. Once again I went somewhat against the grain, ranking Nico Hischier ahead of Nolan Patrick. Fellow writer, Devin Simzer, agrees with me and you can check out his article, “The Case For Nico Hischier to Go First Overall“.
